Five Under The Radar In Southwest Ohio

We look at five names starting to emerge on the scene for the 2014 recruiting class from Southwest Ohio. We look at all five and what is making each of them a prospect of note.

The month of May is quickly coming to a close and soon summer camps will open with prospects from across the country looking to earn scholarship offers.

In Southwest Ohio five names you might not have heard of could soon be holding multiple offers and see recruiting battles heat up to earn their signature the first Wednesday in February.

Kenny Coleman – Clayton (Ohio) Northmont | DE-DT

Coleman will be playing his senior year at Northmont after transferring from Dublin (Ohio) Scioto High School. Standing 6-foot-3, 240-pounds, Coleman was used primarily as a defensive tackle at Scioto but could see a move to strong side defensive end to help free up teammate Terry Ramsey. Coleman has the football bloodlines as his father played at Ohio State.

Jared Brumfield – Dayton (Ohio) Stebbins | OLB-RB

Not many have heard about Brumfield as Stebbins is not known for producing many high level division one talents. However, Brumfield has great size standing around 6-foot-3, 218-pounds. Brumfield plays running back and linebacker for Stebbins and with some work could see a future on the offensive side of the ball as a power back with speed. However, with a tendency to run high we'll list him as a linebacker at this time.

Robert Young – Miamisburg (Ohio) | S-OLB

The Miamisburg football program's resurgence last season had a lot to do with a new coach, Young and a few other younger players who bought into a new mind set. A legit 6-foot-2, 185-pounds, Young has the speed coaches look for and once he hits camps we expect several to take notice. FOX Sports NEXT watched Young run a 51-second flat 400 in his teams 4x400 during the Greater Western Ohio Conference Championships with wet track conditions. Young's also posted personal best times of 11.62 in the 100 meter dash and 23.15 in the 200 meter dash.

Izaiah Fuller – Cincinnati (Ohio) La Salle | WR

Fuller has all the tools to shine standing just over 6-foot-4 and 180-pounds. Injuries have kept Fuller from showing his skills and the lack of film has slowed interest early. However, this summer will provide Fuller the chance to open eyes with his great hands and route running abilities. While the early talk has been around teammate Derek Kief, do not be surprised if La Salle has two Division One receivers when all is said and done.

Connor Brown – Miamisburg (Ohio) | TE/OT

Brown has already picked up offers from Bowling Green and Middle Tennessee as a tight end. However, while Brown is a very solid tight end, we feel some teams could look at making the 6-foot-6, 225-pound Brown into a future offensive tackle. Either way, we like Brown as a prospect and fully expect more offers to be extend to him in the coming weeks.
